    Lakers /Denver....Lakers Just Too Strong

    Why??

    James is unstoppable and gets too many easy baskets and sets up others with easy baskets which means high shooting %'s

    Anthony Davis will be an issue too

    Lakers play as a team

    Denver has two all stars and the second best one two punch NBA of course but might not able to take the wear and tear in a long series.

    Denver could get two games

    James is a Racist Coward & Cry Baby.

    Davis Brain Dead & a Sheep.

    Lakers are a GANG of THUGS

    Denver Beat the Best Team in the West the Clippers.

    Denver Could Get Four Games.

    Yeah,,,ya...Is this league even testing anymore? Hard to believe nobody has tested positive.

    Is this an angle still in play? What happens if a team catches it? Tough luck or postponement of games.

    They for sure stopped testing... NFL doesnít test either. Hell, they donít test for a lot of things. You mean to tell me the only positive drug tests ever are for weed? No way- guys blowing rails and taking molly with their hoes all the time.

    So says the welsher. It is funny that one of the wagers that you made and welshed on involved you taking the Lakers. As a welsher, your "lifelong" love of the Lakers may cost you just that.

    Yes Denver could win four games out of seven games.

    Defense usually wins, the Clippers who have real good team defense played a team that played a very good team defense too which neutralized the Clippers strength.

    I had feeling that series was going to be George/Leonard vs. Jokic, Murray and probably the best core of role players in the NBA.
    It took seven games though to do it.
    That and the main reason the Clippers blew it was because they got complacent when they were up 3 to 1 and air mailed in the final 3 game.

    Denver's defense is so underrated, they led the league in defensive rebounding, they were masters making opposing team shoot one and done. Thanks largely due to Jokic. Overall depending on what metrics you use the Nuggets were fourth best in team defense.

    Thing is the Lakers play solid defense as well, so when both teams play solid defense all bets are off because I'm not sure if Denver's offense can beat the Lakers offense, but the Lakers will have their hands full with Denver.

    Look for the under totals in the games before wagering, if you can get a high number bet the under is the way you might want to go, both teams don't allow rebounds,

    i remember rondo with the bulls. his effect on their winning/losing when he was healthy was incredible. they were a good team and led the celtics 2-0 in the playoffs. then he broke his hand, was out, and the celtics won 4 straight

    just a good solid smart player and the reason they should win the series 4-2

    Luck involved in winning a championship. Lakers just got lucky, Clips the only team that could beat them.

    Lakers beat Denver 4-1, maybe 4-2, same with the team from the East.

    Lakers are overvalued in the series at this point. They and the Clippers are basically equals and we're still getting the inflated lines. What is it currently? Lakers -7?

    Not saying I would take the Nugs at +7 (thinking about it), but I definitely wouldn't take the Lakers -7.

    If this game goes to game 7 and the Laker's lose they'll burn shit out here in California.

    Wait, if the Lakers win they'll burn shit too.

    So nevermind, carry on.
